Gill R&D was commissioned to design a militarised, handheld and battery operated detector system, under an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) by a branch of Government.
The need was for an innovative detector system to be developed from scratch within a compressed timescale. The detector had to meet stringent operational, ergonomic and environmental standards, suitable for use in hazardous and challenging locations, where dependable and consistent outputs are combined with exceptional mechanical durability.
Working in close collaboration with specialists from the customer, the detector system was created and developed with a series of functional prototypes. These verified the operational effectiveness, and refined the user interface and construction detailing to ensure the design specification was met. This included feedback from end users in an operational setting.
The final pre-production prototypes were in addition subjected to extensive mechanical, environmental, EMC and HFI testing prior to receiving acceptance from the customer for deployment.
The complete project was delivered on time and to the agreed budget.
